33 weeks

27 days and counting until I'm 37 weeks. Then, it's just a waiting game until he decides he's ready to meet us! I keep growing and growing and am a lot bigger than I ever imagined. Andrew agrees, but we both know we were naive because when you're 5'2" there isn't anywhere for a baby to go except out. I am feel better than I imagined though. For some reason I imagined myself as a blob on a couch once I hit 32 weeks. I'm glad that isn't the case.

I have finally started sleeping better and have a ton of energy. I have been cooking and cleaning like a nut and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. I may try to find a few freezer meals I can make ahead of time so that we aren't eating a ton of carryout the first week or two that Henry is home.

Time has slowed down now that I am getting closer to giving birth. My mom is visiting me Sunday-Wednesday this week (ok, honestly she is really coming to stay with me because I don't like staying home alone when Andrew is out of town, but it will still be a lot of fun) and then one of our friends from college is coming to stay with us the next weekend. Our anniversary is on the 31st which happens to be our first childbirth class...what a fun way to spend our 1st anniversary haha. Hopefully all of those plans will help time move faster!

I don't know if there is a big change in my week to week pictures now, but I feel like I'm getting larger. I took a head on picture just for fun. I definitely have a round belly!

How far along? 33 weeks.
Total weight gain: 32 pounds.
Baby's weight: 4.6-5lbs and 17 inches long.
Maternity clothes? I mostly wear sweat pants because I stay at home. I only have a few maternity shirts that fit me now.
Sleep: Pretty good.
Best moment this week: Nothing stands out. I'm just happy my little man is still cooking in my belly.
Movement: He's a nut.
Gender: Boy for sure!
Labor Signs: A few contractions, but nothing that's making me any closer to labor.
Belly Button in or out? So close to being out, but not quite.
What I miss: Shopping at regular stores.
What I am looking forward to: My mom coming to visit me.
Milestones: We only have about a month and a half to go!
